Things a Primary School Teacher wishes parents knew

Due to the necessity of professionalism, the average parent is never really able to get to know teachers personally, until now!

Where can I buy childrens clothes that are bright, fun and funky in the UK ?

These are my hand picked top favourites, not just because of the super cool, funky and fun children's clothing that they sell, but because I buy from these people to clothe the adorable little people in my life too! So when I say that I really like their stuff, I mean it!
